Potential donors are difficult to figure out. For most people that is because they are not looking at asking for donations as sales. Nonprofits are selling a service of betterment in local communities, a certain field, or world issues. Understanding donors does not go much further than the basic facts of humans bing prideful and not think much beyond their immediate surroundings. This week's Ultimate Donations blog post goes into the thought process fundraisers need for increasing incoming donations.

When heading out on foot to make donation requests in person, have a copy of your 501c3 determination letter, event flyer, business card, and a request letter on your organization's letterhead with you. Having this documentation allows you to pivot in cases such as where the person in-charge is not available or just needs more tangible info. The link to the Ultimate Donations blog above goes into more detail on succeeding with in-person donation requests.

The point of a donation request letter is to give donors an idea about your organization, the event taking place, and how donating will benefit them. You are "selling" your organization to donors. They want to know that giving to your organization will actually do good and not just go into the budget. Wrap all of this information up in a personal letter so that it does not look like one of the hundreds of other letters you send out. Take the time to think about how you would react to the substance and formatting of your letter if you received it in the mail. Head over to the Ultimate Donations blog for a full donation request letter outline and more helpful tips.
